I have a novel that I have been working on for the last three years and I am confident that it can now be edited by a professional editor. What I need is Its 90,000 words. The kind of editor I am looking for is someone with English as his/her first language and has edited fiction books. He should be someone who has studied literature/writing/editing and has a record/experience in writing and editing.
This freelancer must agree to edit a sample work before I give him/her the job. He must be ready to read the entire book, and write a review of what he thinks and should be done.
I want sentences to be polished and reworded to improve clarity and flow and to get rid of repetition, clumsy wording, an overuse of passive voice, and convoluted sentence structure. Facts are checked and corrected, sections may be rearranged if necessary, and subheads and chapter titles might be reworked to make them catchier, funnier, or more dramatic.
I want a good editor who will make suggestions to remedy these problems. In numerous ways. Also I want an experienced editor who will point out problems I have overlooked and will help me find my voice, refine my vision, and bring this manuscripts to a more perfect state.
I have attached a sample word document. Please edit it and send it back to me if you are interested.
